Healthy No-Bake Energy Balls Recipe

Energy Balls

This healthy no-bake energy balls recipe is my go-to recipe for active weekends.

Weekends at our house are filled with athletic activities. If it isn’t an all-day volleyball tournament, we love to hike and ski, and I’ve even been persuaded to do a few mountain biking excursions.

These energy balls provide both quick energy from the carbs and sustaining energy from the protein.

Might I add –  they taste a heck of a lot better than anything you buy at the store!

Every weekend I whip up a new batch of these. They are so quick to make I can even tackle this recipe at 5:30 in the morning before heading to the slopes.

“What if I don’t like raisins?” you might ask. You could substitute any dried fruit of choice or go in a whole other direction and substitute coconut flakes.

Healthy No-Bake Energy Balls Recipe


  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup dry oatmeal
  • 2/3 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup ground almonds
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon


  1. In a large bowl, stir together the oatmeal, raisins, peanut butter, chocolate chips and honey.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the ground almonds and cinnamon.
  3. Roll peanut butter dough into 1 inch balls. Roll the balls in the almond and cinnamon mixture to coat.
  4. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

To me, these no-bake energy balls taste just like classic trail mix. Only they are easier to eat. You just pop one in your mouth instead of grabbing it by the handful.

  1. Hi,

    I am wondering if there is something else that can be substituted in this recipe for the peanut butter please?

  2. Hi Sherridan, Can you substitute another nut butter like almond? Sunbutter would work too. I don’t think coconut butter is creamy enough to use. Andrea

  3. Yummy!! I’ve actually been looking for a raw treat to make before my yoga practice. As a vegan I would just substitute the honey with Bee Free Honee that is made from apples instead of bees. Thanks so much for posting! 🙂
